Title: A TELECARE SYSTEM AND AN ELECTRONIC LOCK DEVICE FOR USE THEREIN, AND AN ASSOCIATED METHOD FOR MONITORING ATTENDANCE TO A TELECARE ALARM EVENT IN A TELECARE SYSTEM
Abstract:
A telecare system (100) comprises a telecare alarm center (TAC) and a plurality of telecare terminals (TT) for use by respective caretakers (CT) at their respective caretaker residences (CTR). Each telecare terminal (TTi) is configured for transmitting a telecare alarm (1) to the telecare alarm center upon occurrence of an alarm event at the caretaker residence (CTRi). The telecare alarm center is configured, as a result of receiving the telecare alarm from the telecare terminal, to transmit a telecare action request (2) to a caregiving entity (CGC; SG; ES). The telecare alarm center is configured for monitoring the receipt of a telecare action performance confirmation (5) indicating that a caregiving person (CGPj; SG; ES) has appeared at the caretaker residence for the purpose of attending to the alarm event. The telecare system also comprises, for each of the caretaker residences (CTR), an electronic lock device (LDi) for mounting to a door (50i) of the caretaker residence (CTRi). The electronic lock device comprises a transceiver (540) capable of wireless interaction (4a) with a key device (KDk), an electrically controlled lock actuator (512) configured for actuation of a lock mechanism (52) of a lock (54) of the door, and a processing unit (510) coupled to the transceiver and configured to cause the lock actuator to actuate the lock mechanism of the lock in response to wireless interaction with the key device. The processing unit is further configured to cause (4b; 4b'; 4b") generation of the telecare action performance confirmation (5).
